The US government has a program to help people with lower incomes get a free phone from Verizon. This helps them stay connected with family and friends without worrying about big phone bills. If your income is below a certain amount, you can apply for this program. You can also qualify if you’re on other aid programs like Medicaid or Food Stamps. To get a Verizon free government phone, you can call a toll-free number (1-800-417-3849) or check online. With this phone, you get some minutes and texts every month, helping you save money.
Here are the steps:
- Check if You Qualify:
- If you earn less than $16,839 a year, or your family earns less than $33,885, you can apply.
- If you’re already getting help like Medicaid or Food Stamps, you also qualify.
- Native American tribe members can qualify too!
- Apply for Your Free Phone:
- Call 1-800-417-3849 to check if this offer is available in your state.

- Enjoy Your New Phone:
